America's Worst President Ever: Jimmy Carter

President James Earl Carter, Jr., better known as Jimmy Carter, is America's worst president ever. At least of the 20th century. In an interview with German magazine Der Spiegel, former President Jimmy Carter equates evangelical Christians with Islamic terrorists such as Hezbolla, Hamas, and Al-Qaeda. Called Israels defense an unjustified attack on Lebanon, Here's an excerpt of the interview:
SPIEGEL: One main points of your book is the rather strange coalition between Christian fundamentalists and the Republican Party. How can such a coalition of the pious lead to moral catastrophes like the Iraqi prison scandal in Abu Ghraib and torture in Guantanamo? Carter: The fundamentalists believe they have a unique relationship with God, and that they and their ideas are God's ideas and God's premises on the particular issue. Therefore, by definition since they are speaking for God anyone who disagrees with them is inherently wrong. And the next step is: Those who disagree with them are inherently inferior, and in extreme cases -- as is the case with some fundamentalists around the world -- it makes your opponents sub-humans, so that their lives are not significant. . . . . .And, of course, fundamentalists don't believe they can make mistakes, so when we permit the torture of prisoners in Guantanamo or Abu Ghraib, it's just impossible for a fundamentalist to admit that a mistake was made.
Carter oversaw the biggest humiliation of our country up until 9/11. In 1979, during the presidency of Jimmy Carter, Iranian Muslim terrorists took over the American embassy in Tehran and siezed 55+ American hostages and held them hostage for over 14 months. President Jimmy Carter allowed Ayatollah Rubollah Khomeini and his Muslim clerics to seize control of Iran. Today Iran is a few years, if not months, away from developing a nuclear weapon and has declared to 'wipe Israel off the face of the earth'. President Carter responded to his own mistake by sending an ill-advised rescue mission that left eight American soldiers dead in Iran. He failed to get the release of the Iranian hostages, fortunately president-elect Ronald Reagan did what President Carter was unable to do, free our American hostages. Of the many failures of his presidency the following are attributed to him: --gave away the Panama Canal to an undemocratic regime --pardoning Vietnam era draft dodgers --killed funding for the B-1 bomber --oversaw the OPEC oil embargo --taxes went up --Libya gave a quarter of million dollars to his brother Billy for what? --withdrew recognition of non-Communist Taiwan --failed to respond properly to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan instead punishing American athletes by pulling out of the Moscow Olympics. President Carter lost the election of 1980 to Ronald Wilson Reagan as being the first elected incumbant president to lose since Hoover in 1932. He also lost in one of the worst defeats ever in American politics, reflecting the deep dissatisfaction that Americans had for Carter. The greatest president of the 20th century was the one that followed the worst, Ronald Wilson Reagan. Let us all bow our heads in unison and thank the Lord our God for this deliverance from ineptitude and malfeance. To read the rest of the Der Spiegel interview of Carter click here.

Carter's a blithering idiot.

But Clinton--there's a case to be made that HE committed treason while IN office...

Not even Jimmuh did that.

Don't forget that Jimmah also was responsible for the "well received" Susan B. Anthony dollar coin that was an instant hit!

I think Jimmah just wanted IKE's image removed from coinage!

I can't believe what idiots you are. How dare you compare the carnage that Bush has wrought with Jimmy Carter's presidency that sought to find thoughtful solutions. Carter emphasized the need to become less dependent on oil and find ways to be more energy efficient. Compare the numbers of lives lost during Bush's presidency with Carter's. Yeah, sure, Catholics are pro-life except when it comes to war. Then you don't care how many lives are lost, it's just you are right and everyone else is wrong. So much for Christianity and what Christ's real message was.

How sad that "Anonymous" doesn't even believe enough in his position about Pres. Carter that he felt unable to afix his own first name. Need we say more?
